Christmas and Ice

Soooo, my husband got into a car accident today. With a parked car. He's fine, our awesomely white trash truck is fine but the lady's van is trashed. We had a relatively nasty ice storm this morning and before leaving the house, my husband neglected to watch the news. He was on his buddy's road when he hit the van. Ironic considering he was going over there to work on said awesomely white trash truck. I think Shawn may have some soreness tomorrow but will overall be fine. And obviously, the lady that owns the van is fine and was in her house during the crash but was super pissed considering the van is five weeks old. Oh yeah, our insurance is going up.

Christmas was good. Jasmine didn't open all her presents before we left for my mom's. Once she opened up her dollhouse, it was all over. She didn't care about any other presents. We had her open them when we got home later. By the time we got to my mom's, she was ready to open more and tore into them like you'd expect a child to do, not all dainty like she has been. Me and my husband bought the (almost) exact same thing for each other. I bought him a Bears shirt and a Bears cup that goes in the freezer. He bought me the EXACT same shirt, only Packers and a freezer cup, Packers. And we opened them at the same time. It was pretty funny. And the night I bought his present for him, I told him after Christmas I was going to buy the same thing for myself. Guess I don't need to now. I also bought him a remote controlled car and without telling him, bought one (a much cheaper version) for Jasmine and they had fun driving them all over my living room. I got my mom a pencil drawing of a dog she owned a few years ago. We had him for less than a year when he was diagnosed with terminal cancer. I wasn't sure she would ever own another dog after he died. I was worried about how it would turn out since it was being done online but I think it turned out great. All modifications were ones that I had asked them to do.
This is the picture they based the sketch off of.

And this is the end result.

I'll post more about Christmas later. For now, I'm going to lay down. Tomorrow we'll probably go see Marley and Me for my birthday. I want to see The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, however, I don't think Jasmine will sit through it and I've heard it's rather long. Marley and Me should keep her attention for the length of the movie.

Glad that Hubby is OK. We slept in a bit today so did not know about the advisories and such. Guess ignorance is bliss LOL. I agree that the drawing turned out well.

I'm glad Shawn is okay! Honestly, we had no idea it was that bad today!

What did Jasmine think of the big dinosaur? Did she like the doll house better?

I love the drawing of the dog. They did a great job. Did your Mom like it?

Check my blog when you get a chance. I'm putting up a little sumpin sumpin for you. :)

Love, Beth

Is today someone's birthday? If so Happy Birthday! Jasmine sounds funny about the presents. You and your hubby must know each other well to buy the same things.

Merry Christmas Jamie... and Happy Birthday! I came by after reading Beth's entry, and followed her link here. I love your blog. Since you are an animal lover, I'll add you to my list of blogs I want to follow. The pencil sketch of your dog is beautiful... I didn't know about that website. Soon, I'm going to post some drawings I have done in the past. One of them is of our dog, Dusty, who died several years ago. She looks a bit like your dog here. Come by and visit me sometime! Bea

Bea said...

BTW, I'm glad that your husband wasn't hurt in the accident... that was way tooooo close! Sounds like you had an otherwise wonderful Christmas! bea

beth sent me. i am sorry to hear about the accident. up here in michigan it's alternated between snowing like a mo-fo and raining buckets. sometimes even in the same day and of course freezing right before i have to actually get into my car and go somewhere.

your blog rocks and many happy returns!

The on going joke between me and Paul when we got a new vehicle this past summer was worrying about it getting hit. Our old truck we didn't give two cents what happened to it. Ironically it was always banged up from some callous idiot backing up into it, at any one of the gigs Paul played in. I'm relieved your husband wasn't hurt. It's been pretty icy here in NY too. Last night Paul said there was booming thunderstorms...in the middle of winter? (weirdness).

I used to stretch out Skye opening presents as well. Between the inlaws and extended family, it was always a 2 day production.

Loved the drawing you had done for your Mom. What a cool idea! By the way Pickles agrees, Mom should not dress up the dog (winks)! (Hugs)Indigo
